2021 Gentle Folk 'Vin de Sofa'

Vin de Sofa (couch wine) also saw change to both label and blend; this year it's a Sangiovese dominant blend, with a portion of Pinot Noir and Merlot. Dark-enough fruit spectrum to give it depth and structure, yet light enough to still be chilled. 

We have been dreaming about making Vin de Sofa out of predominantly Sangiovese for a number of years now and its finally happened! Its a delicious lip smacking spicy vibrant little number that is ready to go and will keep you going through those balmy spring evenings.

Varieties: Sangiovese, Pinot noir, Syrah & Merlot

Vineyards: Charleston (Sangiovese & Syrah), Little Creek (Pinot noir) & Morialta (Merlot)

Winemaking notes: The varieties were fermented separately and blended together after five months of aging. In terms of specific details, the Sangiovese was destemmed and macerated for three weeks before pressing and elevage in stainless steel. The Pinot Noir was 100% whole bunch fermented, pressed after ten days, and aged in a mixture of stainless steel and 225L barriques. The Merlot and Syrah were macerated as 20% whole bunch for two weeks before being pressed into 500L puncheons. The wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered in August 2021 with a small addition of sulphur.
